Condors With Orange Tags

Condors with orange wing tags are "1000" birds. This means that an orange tag with a 6 on it would be condor 1006.

Hatched: Estimated 4/15/2019 from a wild nest outside of Pinnacles
Sex: Female
Parents: Condor 330 and Ventana Wildlife Society condor 375 (deceased 2020)
Fun Fact: Biologists were completely surprised to see 1006 flying with her parents in the fall of 2019; they didn't think that 330 and 375 were nesting that year. This is the pair's third offspring that they have raised in secret outside of the park!

Hatched: 4/19/2020 from a wild nest at Pinnacles National Park
Sex: Female
Parents: Condor 340 and VWS condor 236
Fun Fact: In September 2023, she made a long flight down to southern California and has become an integrated part of the Socal condor flock ever since! Will the Socal flock be her new home or will she return to her birth place? We are unsure, no other condor from the Central cal flock has stayed down there for quite so long!
